The preferred donation method


Recommended Posts

PCGW staff, how you prefer to receive your donations? I allow you to decide.



  • Patreon

A commonly used crowd-funding platform for sending monthly donations.

+ Increases PCGW's monthly donation amount, can positively affect the site's reputation.
- 5% fee of successfully-processed pledges + international transfer fees: https://patreon.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/204606125-How-do-you-calculate-fees-

- The website is bloated in my opinion


  • Flattr

- 10% fee, includes the payment processor's cut.


  • Direct PayPal transaction

- I have to transfer money from my bank account to PayPal, my funds can be frozen at any time for no reason.

- International payment fee: https://www.paypal.com/selfhelp/article/FAQ690

- Sketchy in-house currency converter which is difficult to disable.

- I would delete my account instantly if a decent alternative appeared.

Does PayPal charge a fee for received donations?


  • Bitcoin

+ Practically no transaction fees.

+ Instant transactions.

- Experimental currency.


EDIT: The "plus" sign "+" disappears for some reason.
